First Baptist Church Mt. Juliet conducted a ceremonial ground-breaking Sunday, Oct. 30 starting the construction of a new childrens building. This multimillion-dollar project will include more than 33,000 feet of additional classroom space that will provide the church and its academy (Mt. Juliet Christian Academy) the capacity to minister to several hundred children each week. The church, under the direction Pastor Andy Hale, continues to focus on its vision to "Love God, Love People, and Go into the World". It is the goal of First Baptist Church for this building to be a place that assists families in teaching children Christian values that will make an eternal difference in their lives.
